Derek - This is such a neat shot!! Love the details and colors! Sometimes I wish there were a few more predators in the pond near me as the geese become overly abundant and cause other problems. A balance would be nice. - Mike

Outstanding capture Derek.... Nature is tough and it hurts to see that the little ones have disappeared. Your photography really has given this baby a life through your work and we all benefit from your talent!! Jeff

How perfect, Derek! Congratulations on your great winner. So sad to hear of the snappers. I think that is the reason why baby ducks don't stay long in our pond, although I like to think momma duck takes them down into the swamp for safe keeping!
